Katleen | My Slow Down moments with The Ritual of Dao

Mwordmag, Rituals, Ritualofdao, ritualsambassador, slow down, relax, cosmetics, soap, My slow down moment… Rituals asked me to tell about my slow down moment(s), given these busy days, packed with work, stress, kids activities, household, renovations, eeeeeeverything really. A mama needs to do a million things, I sometimes wonder how it’s possible to have all these mothers doing all these tasks, without becoming insane, haha! So, when I look at myself, I must say that I definitely need to relax from time to time. My favorite moment of the day must be when the kids are in bed at night and the house is clean. When they had their diner, their bath, their little bedtime story… when their backpacks and clothes for the next day are ready and when the kitchen and our home is clean, I have my slow down moments. Here’s how I relax and wind down from the day:

-I try to fit in some yoga exercises, but I must admit I want to do them more often. It always makes me feel relaxed and stretched, I love it.  I also love my Rituals yoga outfit.

-If I had to choose between shower and bath, I definitely choose shower. But once in a while, I light my Ritual of Dao candle and relax in our new bath tub. The Ritual of Dao foam is divine.

-On Wednesdays, my girlfriends and I have our tennis night. This means: 2 hours of tennis and 2 hours of sipping rosé, haha! It is so much fun.

-All the other days of the week, I always have some tea at night. I love ginger tea, but I also adore the Emperor’s dream tea. It’s super tasty and calming. I also like to use the Ritual of Dao Relaxing Serum, because it feels and smells amazing.

These are definitely my slow down moments. And might I just add a plain TV night?  We have Netflix since the beginning of this year and I must say I’m hooked! I spray a little Bed and Body mist on my pillow and it’s the most relaxing thing.

What about you? What is your ultimate Slow Down moment?

I truly cannot believe school school is starting in less than 2 weeks! I have always loved the first day of school. It is a the start of new challenges, new learning opportunities, new friends, new teachers, a blanc canvas that is waiting to be colored. I also think it is not too bad to get back in our routine, I kinda love the structure school brings to our days. However, we’re not quite sure yet how we will organise all the after school activities though, haha … Anyways, a new school year means a big boy school bag for Jerome, since he is starting first grade (Is he really getting this big already?!). The other kiddos get a new bag too, they all needed a change since some of their old ones were completely worn out. We found our favorites at Hippeschoentjes.be, they carry a lot of different brands, and they are all so beautiful. Oh and how good are these engraved chairs from Stokke? No more fighting over their chair, makes the morning rush a bit easier, ha!
